I often use my digital camera to take pictures of flat, rectangular objects, like framed paintings on a wall, book or album covers, or pages of documents. Of course, I can't take these pictures straight on and perfectly level, but that's OK. I know what the dimensions of the objects are, so I can just correct the perspective in software.
In Graphic Converter (a Mac OS X app), I just use the "Unskew" function. I simply need to select the four corners of the rectangular object I photographed. (Guide lines connecting the four points helps me to locate them.) After I've located the four corners, I tell it to "unskew" and a rectangular image is produced. Does Gimp have any function like this? I found the perspective tool, but that requires me to manually shift the perspective and eyeball when I think a rectangular image is produced. That's not nearly as convenient. _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list email@example.com https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list
